Right away I want to mention I want to apologize to josh the arachnid kid for spelling his name wrong on the flyer, sorry josh I apologize for the inadequate use of spell check. Exciting news now you can find all of the Word on The Streets online at http://www.g-rad.org/wordonthestreet/ and the best part is that you can post comments and all that good stuff so check out G-rad Check out the Word on the Street, tell me what you think.
